We all know most dates are not written in stone. Weather, Fire, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Flood, Tsunami, or Invasion from Outer Space, etc. just might change things.
Some will fall by the wayside and others will be spontaneously added by members at our meetings, as is our tradition.

*    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *    *   

These (BELOW) are hard dates by group consensus, which are written in stone. This year is another ambitious schedule that will offer many diverse environments, an aspect we love about the great out-of-doors. A schedule that will test commitment, vigor, resources, patience, and some days… resolve, but challenges worthy of all.

Particular attention needs to be drawn to;
MAY Pinnacles State Park
JUNE Columbia River Gorge Backpacking Trip in Oregon
JULY Rafting Trip Cache Creek
JULY Sequoia Kings Canyon Backpacking
AUG–– Highway 50 (Echo Pass Lodge) to Highway I-80

This year promises to be great fun. See you on the trail,

–– CVHBG Committee & Planning
